The Dresden EU4ART_differences team at HfBK started the pilot phase for their third study cycle on 17 October with ten postgraduates whose participation in the intense one-year program is supported through a small fellowship.
After an organizational kick-off, the main part started with a lecture by German artist and art theorist Stefan Römer, who ted his third publication “DeConceptualize – Zur Dekonstruktion des Konzeptuellen in Kunst, Film, und Music.” This follows “Strategien des Fake” (2001) and “Inter-esse” (2014). The next day, Stefan Römer led a half-day workshop for the fellows giving input and impulses for their own Artistic Research practice.
The following two half days were reserved for the presentations of the fellows who are pursuing their own artistic research throughout the pilot year following various artistic approaches. The entire week also included a seminar by Till A. Baumhauer on the principles of Artistic Research and Anja Ziegler, the director of the HfBK Library, on how to do library research.
Finally, the group was able to welcome Angelica Speroni, an ABARoma colleague and doctoral fellow, who gave a presentation on “Intermediality, between artistic research and communication”, this session was done hybrid in order to open it to alliance colleagues. Angelica is involved in the the EU4ART project and shared findings of her current PhD research.
The following block event of the pilot phase will take place from 5-9 December 2022, including public lectures and workshops for the pilot phase participants at HfBK Dresden, some offers are open to participants at all academies.
